Can I Be A Barber and Cosmetologist?

Can I Be A Barber and Cosmetologist

Barbering and cosmetology are two of the most popular paths within the beauty industry. For individuals interested in offering more services to their clients, becoming dual licensed is an excellent choice. Licensed cosmetologists are able to cut hair and offer hair coloring services, while having a barber license focuses more on male hairstyles and facial hair styles for mustaches and beards.

One of the main differences between these two licenses is that individuals who have completed barber programs and passed the state board exam are able to perform services using a straight razor. Those who have only received their cosmetology license are not able to use a straight razor on any of the clients they see in a hair salon.


The Cosmetology to Barber Crossover Program

This program consist of 300 hours of instruction. The course includes a combination of theory classes, practical mannequin work, and actual hands on clientele practice. The program will ensure that basic skills to more advanced skills are gained as individuals proceed through the course. The course also ensures that students are also prepared for the State Board licensing applications and evaluations.

This crossover program allows you to get the additional skills you need to become a barber without having to go through the entire barbering class.
